The Open Submissions show at SEEN’s favourite Soho haunt, Lights of Soho, continues apace with a special, exclusive, one-day-only exhibition this Saturday the 22nd of October, of Henry Landon’s ‘all the things in-between’.

The work is influenced by the re-occurring fractal patterns found in nature and the mathematical principle of the Golden Section. The Fibonacci sequence is the mathematical formula discovered by Leonardo Pisano in 1202. This formula can be seen throughout the natural world – from a snail’s shell to the spiralling arms of a galaxy, and everything in between.

Henry said, “I created the piece to convey my fascination with the wonders of the natural world; ‘all the things in-between’ is a hypnotising optical spectacle that asks the viewer to revel in the majesty of the pattern.”

‘All the things in-between’ is constructed from walnut wood, bronze and perspex and is internally lit. Made of 20 segments that combine to form a fractal image, the multiple layers of wood and metal combine to give movement to the piece. The dimension of each segment conforms to the ratio of the Golden Section (derived from the Fibonacci sequence), and has been used by artists and designers for centuries.

If you haven’t visited it yet, do check out Lights of Soho, quite literally London’s brightest art gallery and members lounge, operating as a cultural hub for Soho’s creative community and the global home of creative neon and light art formats. It still has the spirit of old Soho, providing a daytime meeting space for Soho’s cultural connectors, influencers and creative community. Lights of Soho offers food and drink and an online art shop.

Cocktails at the General Store

SEEN is tireless in her cocktail research, and very much enjoyed travelling to Highbury last week to try The General Store’s new summer cocktail menu and to check out the new interior. She was delighted to sample a Honey Mimosa, very sweet and fruity and just the ticket after a hot journey. It was, as its name suggests, a Mimosa with just a touch of honey.

Canaletto: A Drawing Workshop with Alexandra Blum

SEEN has long been an admirer of Alexandra Blum’s liminal and apocalyptic renderings of London’s urban spaces, in which the capital seems ever-changing. It is the artist’s job to capture not only space but the passage of time itself.

Love Hunt at the British Museum

SEEN had the pleasure (pun intended) of being invited to a ‘Love Hunt’ at the British Museum. The museum, founded in 1753, is committed to preserving art, culture and history, and has collected around 8 million objects. These artefacts come from every corner of the world, revealing a fragment of many significant moments in time, from Mesopotamia to the Vikings; from the Inuits to the Indians. So, when one embarks on a visit to the world famous British Museum, where does one start?
